So, I am either going to have to be very creative for the rest of the week or dig into my rebate money some more to cover the replacement of this food.
Here is a break down of what I purchased this weekend that is now all gone.
At Aldis I spent $64.78 and got a lot. Here are some of the prices at Aldis so you can get an idea of the savings there.
Seedless Watermelon $2.49
24 pk water $2.99
Potato Sandwich Rolls $1.29
Split Top Wheat Bread $1.19
Baby Carrots $.59
Skim Milk $1.99
Large Eggs $.99
Everything gone except 1 gallon of milk
Yes I did…but wait, it’s a trick. Well sort of. I actually did a mystery shop for Market Force and as payment got $10 free groceries and $10 shop fee. So, the $23.53 I spent was really $3.53 for me. Out of this picture about 1/2 of everything is gone except the orange juice which is completely gone.
When I went, there was meat that was on Manager’s Special because of the short expiration dates. Well I snatched them up quickly and used some of it today for our BBQ and froze the rest right away. My total here was $29.85. And by the way, all that’s left from this picture is 1 package of chicken.
So, all together I spent $98.16 which is over my $75.00/wk budget.
If you remember, I have been using rebate money to cover the difference for these past couple of weeks while the kids have been visiting. We did have to make some extra runs to the store for some little items so I used up about $30 into the rebate money this weekend.
Now lets see how the rest of the week goes. Can we last on 1 gallon of milk and 1 package of chicken and some yogurt?
